When you include this insurance with your reservation, the cost and repair of covered accidental damage will be handled by us! What does it cover? Unintentional damage to the vacation rental during your stay, up to $1,500, including things like carpet spills, furniture tears, broken lamps, and even pet damage in pet-friendly homes! *

... you or a loved one gets sick (even if they aren't traveling with you)?

... you need medical treatment while traveling?

... a blizzard or hurricane prevents you from starting your vacation or forces you to leave early?

... a family member back home passes away and you must return early from your vacation?

About Patricia Arbaugh

I love the beach and couldn't think of a better place to own a vacation home. I know you'll enjoy it as much as I do!

Patricia Arbaugh purchased this condo in 2003

Why Patricia Arbaugh chose San Diego County

Mission Beach is unique with it's 3.5 miles of wide white-sand beach and boardwalk. San Diego has the best year-round weather.

This place was clean when we arrived. It is stocked with more than enough of everything in the kitchen. The location is perfect, steps away from the beach! Patricia was easy to communicate with. She responded quickly whenever I tried to get a hold of her. Thank you for the great week at the beach! We loved it!

This 3 BR 1 3/4 Bath beach house is a great value! Easy to book, easy parking and great location.

  • 5 of 5

Not right on Ocean Walk, but the view is great from the roof deck ... just 1 house back on Strand (alley). Belmont Park is nearby. Take Uber and Lyft rides to and from Pacific Beach where the dining and shopping are great, but parking can be difficult or expensive.

If you're expecting the newest, ocean front, pristine, sparkling beach house with A/C, and need a huge master suite, this is not for you. If you like the charm of an older, well -maintained place, at an affordable price, you will be happy you chose this house. The roof deck view is great, but there are power lines. Go to the beach for pictures. The balcony view off the master BR is good, but the balcony is small. Shared garage washer/dryer was never a problem with the downstairs neighbor - they are delightful folks. The layout of the house is quirky, but there is a lot of privacy because of the layout. The kitchen is spacious with plenty of counter space for cooking. We did not cook or use the rooftop BBQ this trip, but it is set up great to do so. There are 2 dedicated parking spaces (not garage) - larger SUV's and trucks will fit in one, smaller sedans are ideal for the other. If you've experienced parking issues in garages in Mission Beach you know how great a spacious place to park is! Priceless! The sofa sleeper is comfortable in a pinch - kids will love it, in front of the big TV! The other bedroom TV's are small and outdated. Wi-fi was great! We enjoyed a relaxed week and will definitely stay again during cool months, when the cool ocean breeze is all that is needed to sleep comfortably. This June trip for Father's Day and the SD County Fair was one of our best ... we've stayed in a lot of beach houses over the last 25 years and found this beach house's "vibe" to be one of our favorites.

Tips ... take a cooler for chilling drinks and water - the fridge fills up quickly! There is no ice maker; plan on buying ice, a lot. There is a small store nearby.

Patricia is great - everything was easy and smooth!

Beach Bliss

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 just got back from San Diego and stayed in this upstairs condo. No one was in downstairs unit so we had complete privacy. This condo was better stocked than many I have rented. Patricia was easy to work with and condo was better than advertised. It looks to be a block to water in pictures but was only one house away from ocean and boardwalk. we watched sunrise and sunsets from the rooftop deck. Great views of ocean to front: bay at back and mountains all around. The lighted rollercoaster was so pretty at dark. Mission Beach was in the middle of all my granddaughter wanted to see and a close drive to all.

Several evenings we ate along the boardwalk or walked about two blocks to Mission Blvd where there were many choices.

Wonderful beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Just off the boardwalk. You can see and hear the waves! Unit is very clean; nice linens and flooring. Perfect for a large family or group of friends. Rooftop has a gas grill and table along with views of Sea World fireworks and the ocean. Owner responds quickly.
